Not sure what to write here……… those that know me will be shocked at that……. I have arthritis, both osteo and rheumatoid and, like many of you, keep trying to find ways to live a full life with the pain that this disease brings. I enjoy painting, drawing and being outside as much as possible in the sunshine, and I enjoy talking to people about anything…….. so….. here goes…… hello
